Badda Bing Badda Boom...

Wow, it has been a long time and I apologize, I lost my usb cord. But thanks to Kelby it's back and I'm blogging again! So, Mikkelle is Officially 1 now. Weird. Of course she is so bald that people have asked if she was 5 months old. Thanks. My parents happened to be in town the weekend before Mikkelle's birthday so we threw a party for her and invited the neighborhood as well as friends and family. It was quite a hit. And Mikkelle loved all the attention. And as much as she loved all the presents she loved the bows that came on them more.
She got lots of great presents including a baby signing book. She can successfully sign "all done" "eat" and "more." She is still working on "drink" and "play" as well as "momma" and "dadda" (though she can say those). She is also very good at saying "HI" especially when holding the phone to her ear.

The theme for her party was "Presents" so we wrapped a bunch of boxes and piled them everywhere.
Mikkelle was the best looking present there! Although she did not like her cake : ( She wanted to eat it but not with 20 people staring at her and the thought of sticking her beautiful hands into that icky icing was apparently not very appealing either. Kelby tried to encourage her by putting her hand in but that only made her cry. No cute messy photos this year...
McCoy is getting big too, he was army crawling all over the place at Mikkelle's birthday party. He gets cuter every time I see him.
Mikkelle looking adorable in one of her new outfits. She just can't seem to help herself : )
This is the pregnant Preying mantis that Kelby found in the backyard. It kept doing that little back and forth rocking motion they do and I was telling Kelby that I was afraid it was going to pounce at me and he's like "No it won't. Just get closer" so I got closer and sure enough it jumped right at me! I screamed and almost broke the camera by spasmodically throwing it to the ground.
Just a picture of proof that she's a daddy's girl.
Now how come she wouldn't do this with her cake? For our anniversary we got a bunch of paint and a canvas and let Mikkelle roll around in the paint. I don't think she's had more fun. She kept squishing the paint in her hand and moving her bum around trying to mush the paint all over. Which she did successfully. The painting now hangs in her bedroom.
